    Boston Commons finished after many years

    This top was found in a trunk in home of my customer's mother after her mother passed away. It is hand pieced. She asked me to add borders and hand quilt it. We think it was made in the '30s of feed sack material. What an honor to finish this beautiful old quilt.

    If the pieces could only talk....what a tale they would tell. You did a great job taking on such a big project.
